Wayne White: An Embarrassment Of Talents
:icontechgnotic: Aug 29, 2012 by techgnotic
I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."
Please stop and say hello and welcome seewaynewhite in his first week at deviantART.

Formation of the Time VortexThank you for visiting my journal entry,More Like This
This concept is based on the comic and TV series Doctor who, special consideration is to be given to Writer; Alan Moore and Dave Lloyd.
It was an arduous task that our space fleet was attempting to accomplish. My colleague and friend known commonly as Omega, had determined that the formation of a wormhole that spanned the length of the entire universe would allow us access to any point in spacetime. It would require a tremendous power source. It was determined that the star in the constellation of Ao, known as Qqaba would make the best choice for our experiment. Our ships were protected by a shield technology called a Statis Halo. This combination of Negative energy and deflector shielding based on Tachyons, kept our ships from being sucked into the resulting blackhole. This Halo also allowed our ships the ability to remain relative to in real time, relative time to Gallifrey, as the compressed spacetime swirled from the event horizon below. It
Am I Racist?Before anything, I would like to clarify: I'm Scandinavian; born with blue eyes, blond hair and light skin. Not that pretty, but relatively tall, just the type Hitler would have liked. I was raised in a lovely neighbourhood with the unfortunate tag 'ghetto' (no, not 'American ghetto', nor the ghetto type from WWII), where about 40% of the people I met on a daily basis were either from other countries or children of those – mostly from central Europe to the Middle East, but we also have quite many Vietnamese. It has never bothered me; thanks to that place and those people, that exact upbringing by my parents who welcomed any child I brought home into our house, I have never once thought of another person to be less than me based on skin color or nationality. The only ones I truly have problems with are religious and/or political fanatics who shove their beliefs down my throat, or the 'ungrateful type' (more about that later), but in general I respect and accept everyone who respecMore Like This
Book Written in DNA codeMore here http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/aug/16/book-written-dna-codeMore Like This
Scientists have for the first time used DNA to encode the contents of a book. At 53,000 words, and including 11 images and a computer program, it is the largest amount of data yet stored artificially using the genetic material.
The researchers claim that the cost of DNA coding is dropping so quickly that within five to 10 years it could be cheaper to store information using this method than in conventional digital devices.
Deoxyribonucleic acid or DNA – the chemical that stores genetic instructions in almost all known organisms – has an impressive data capacity. One gram can store up to 455bn gigabytes: the contents of more than 100bn DVDs, making it the ultimate in compact storage media.
A three-strong team led by Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School has now demonstrated that the technology to store data in DNA, while still slow, is becoming more practical. They report in the journ

This is nothing more than just stern and pissed-off chew-out to the people who are causing this protest against the voice of Derpy and petition to keep Hasbro from banning the Derpy character from the show, and it's not Hasbro's fault. IT'S YOU! Yea, you know who I'm talking to, the hardcore-bronies who cried an epic-movie-"NOOOOO!!!" over a little character-voice-mix-up that happened at the near beginning of the MLP:FiS episode "The Last Roundup".
What happened was the voice actress "Tabitha St. Germain" didn't have much information on the Derpy character except that she's suppose to be a accident-prone klutz, but didn't know she was female. Mistaking her for a boy character, Tabitha gave the female character "Derpy" the voice of a klutzy boy, which coincidentally

Quino - Latin American cartoonistJoaquín Salvador Lavado, better known as Quino, is an Argentine cartoonist born in Mendoza on July 17, 1932. According to his official website, Quino discovered his love for art at the young age of 3 thanks to his uncle Joaquín Tejón, painter and advertising illustrator.More Like This
In Mendoza, he went to the School of Fine Arts (Escuela de Bellas Artes) with the hopes of working for the comic Rico Tipo. However, he left the school in 1945. Five years later, he sells his first cartoon to a silk shop and visits Buenos Aires for 3 weeks in search for a job, with not luck whatsoever. In 1954, he returns to Buenos Aires where some of his works get published by Esto Es. In 1963 he publishes his first book: a collection of silent comics titled Mundo Quino.

As this community has grown so much over the years, so has the amount of invalid stock and resources that have been provided by some deviants. The Stock and Resources community feels like this reflects negatively on them, the volunteers have a hard time trying to teach people about valid stock and how to use it correctly, and it gives an appearance that deviantART Staff tolerate so-called “art theft” or copyright infringement.

Korra: Year of the Black Water DragonI spent my saturday in Chinatown here in LA to celebrate Chinese New Year. There was an amazing performance group that did kung fu and even contortionist stuff - it totally reminded me of Avatar (and specifically, Ty Lee). I wish I knew the name of the group cause I'd totally give them a shout out if I did.More Like This
I'm told this is not only the year of the Dragon, but also the Black Water Dragon. I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I'd love it if anyone could explain it to me. At the very least, it sounds like a multi-hit-dice D&D monster.
Then it dawned on me - Korra is not only from the Watertribe, but a well versed firebender, which we now know (thanks to episode 313, "The Firebending Masters") learned their fighting style from dragons. So it really is apropos that "The Year of the Black Water Dragon" is also "The Legend of Korra"'s year.
Being at the parade really took me back to my days on Avatar. I

What we can do? Black March"Another protest is building steam. This time, its a boycott aimed directly at big media, called Black March. For the entire month of March, consumers are encouraged to not buy any media. Personally, I like the idea of this even better than the web blackout, as effective as it was. Sony, Disney, Fox, Paramount and the WB seem to think they are invulnerable because we, as consumers, have grown so dependent on them for our entertainment. Hopefully, a good participation level will show them exactly how wrong they are.More Like This

This Art Is ShitIf I knew then what I knew now, maybe I might have appreciated my work a little more.More Like This
I always used to compare myself to the other artists that I would see, artists much older than me, with the training and the experience I didn't have. It didn't seem to matter to me where they came from, just that they where good and I was not. If I had understood at the time that someday, with perseverance, study and practice that I too might be ask good as them, maybe I might have worked a little harder, studied a little more and not been so down on myself.
Now I look back on a lot of the artists who were my idols, megabytes worth of their art saved to my ancient drive in the basement for reference and inspiration. I realize, they really weren't that good. Some of them were actually quite bad. At any given time, if your art sucks to you or even thousands of other people, it is amazing to someone and you are inspiring someone else by sharing it with them.

JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

Book News: Not Everyone's A Fan Of Amazon's Fan Fiction Move
Amazon's move last week to begin selling fan fiction has prompted a backlash in the online community. On the one hand, the deal would do away with the copyright restrictions that keep writers of fan fiction from selling their work. On the other hand, it comes at a cost: 65 percent of profits go to Amazon and the original rights holder, and the fan fiction writer hands over ownership of the text and any original elements introduced into the story. And Amazon's rules are strict — there can be no crossovers (i.e., Harry Potter can't join forces with Edward Cullen), and pornography is forbidden, ruling out works such as Fifty Shades of Grey, which started out as Twilight fan fiction. John Scalzi, the president of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, wrote on his , "This is not any
Objectification of MenAfter reading through the comments on my last journal about Tropes Vs Women in Gaming Part 2 I noticed a lot of people are angry we're even talking about sexism because (as they put it) "men are ALSO sexualized and objectified in gaming so women shouldn't complain that they are too."More Like This
And while that's a nice thought that sounds logical at first... any causal observer to gaming and most media today will be able to recognize that the two sides are not equal enough to make that sort of comparison. Here's the difference as I see it: Men are objectified and sexualized, yes, but it's not done for women. It's done for men. The objectification of men in gaming and other media is a self image fantasy FOR men. In other words, both the objectification of men and women are done for the benefit of men.
Not only that but again a casual observer will note that the standards of "beauty" are not at all equal on both sides. Female heros are all designed to be attractive, sexy, thin, sensual, pure,
Photography, Modeling, and Your SafetyFrom time to time, friends ask me about various modeling offers they have received.More Like This
They usually want to know the following:
Is it a real offer?
Do I think it's safe?
Is it a scam?
I can't know all of these answers for each time I'm asked, but I do have two thoughts on photo shoots and personal safety:
1) You should always bring a chaperon/friend (male, strong, with a mind for protection) to photo shoots with a photographer you don't know personally. If the photographer resists you bringing a friend... then he is probably a creepy person.
A professional photographer will understand that this is your first time working with him. He will want you to be as comfortable as possible, otherwise the shoot will be a failure. If he doesn't know this, then he is not a professional photographer.
Knowing a photographer personally and knowing of him are not the same. If 30 of your friends know the photographer, but you have never worked with him or had a lengthy conversation with him, in person

Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know

Seniority Announcement - July 2014More Like This
This article marks the latest additions to the dizzy height of Senior members in our community. With just over 1000 deviants holding the highly saught after Senior Member accolade -- it's clearly a moment that deserves recognition.
So what does it take to become a Senior? That's a question many have asked and have never really been able to get a straight answer on. Some have gained Seniority as a thank you for their time spent as a Volunteer, or to recognise their contribution to a particular project or collaborative action. Some have gained Seniority because of their community spirit, providing help and assistance to many other deviants and taking time out to promote the work of others in the community.
Some people have received Seniority because of their artistic endevours, having a positive influence on their peers by sharing resources, providing constructive criticism and by being a voice that stands out

Pricing Your ArtworkThis is probably one of the things that is most confusing for up-and-coming Artists, and even on occasions for those that have been in the industry for a while.More Like This
You have to be realistic in your approach to pricing work and take into account a number of factors that affect the end price of what you create.
You must also be able to assess your Art world qualifications, the time you have been in the business, and yes I do say business, as what Artists don't understand is that the majority of people that invest or purchase your work are generally going to be left-brained people, the ones that went out and made business as part of the creed for life.
Do you think you are as good as Picasso or Dali and if so, do you think you are going to get prices in the millions? Not a chance, so be realistic with your pricing.
One of the things that prevent an Artist from looking at their work objectively is their ego. Some people in the Art world have got some ginormous egos.

Stockers you should knowHey people! So, one of the many questions I get asked about how to improve figure drawing is where to find a suitable model. In a perfect world, friends and family members would sit for us artists for hours on end, however that's highly unlikely especially if you're looking for an "actiony" pose! Also, those of you who are just beginning to draw the figure need to do so from a human model. Drawing from life is, once again, ideal, but stock photos are the next best thing.

Hey Devious CSSkinners!
A great part of making an appealing web design, whether its a Website or a Journal article skin, is the Typography. Fonts play a big role in this. Many websites and journal skins had to resort to using common typefaces that were installed on all machines. With CSS3, several websites use the @font-face property to implement the font file in their web pages. As this feature is not available for Journal skins, there is another way to use fancy fonts that dA has allowed to integrate into Journal Skins (it's not yet available for use
talent follow upso after a great many debates, here is what i am seeing.More Like This
there are 4 types of people responding.
1. the hard working artist agrees, they understand the time they have put into it, and in turn they are seeing the improvement they desire. they study the right things, like life, to understand how things work. they fight being completely self indulgent 100% of the time so they can better learn the skills they need.
2. the casual artist who doesnt really agree because they see somebody better, they are happy with what they can do and know they can be better, but they compare themselves to others too often.
3. the lazy fuck that thinks they must not be talented because they dont put in much time. and since they are so frustrated with seeing how great others are, they must not be talented while the other person is.
4. the people who see some little kid copy a drawing and imagine that they must be some kind of naturally born incredible artist. most of these people arent much beyond a part time

this is my final say in the argument against natural born talent vs skill. we all start out by drawing scribbles that slightly resemble things. i was about 3 yrs old here., and had probably already been drawing for some time since i was brought up in a family of artists. drawing only gives back with the time we give to it, and it takes a lot of patience, more needed in the beginning, and a lot of determination to keep at it even though we are continually frustrated.
hope this inspires some of you to keep going, or some of you to start, it will be even better if more of you, my dA friends, stop making excuses saying you werent born with the ability to make your dreams come true. the only thing holding you back is yourself. drawing is but a skill which we learn through lots of practice, determination, observation and patience. if you also have the undenied passion for it, you may see yourself getting further than others.
it also helps if you're able to be ho

Choose any media or medium and there is no question that Drones have become the white hot center of debate for a multitude of deeply consequential concerns for the entire Earth Sphere. No matter the digital end point or theatre of conversation, whether it be politics, war, privacy, pop culture, or the rise of machines – Drones or UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) are the current catalyst du jour in any number of flashpoint discussions. From the front page headlines of news outlets around the world, to op-ed pages debating national security vs. non-juridical “just

PE: Daily Deviations - The Myth and the LegendDaily Deviations, or DDs . . . for some deviants, receiving one is the epitome of awesomesauce in the deviantART world. For others, they are a nice way to show off the work of lesser-known artists. Still others treat them as a special way to bring attention to great art that exemplifies works being done by a particular gallery or community.More Like This
Perhaps because there are so many different ways of conceptualizing DDs, there are also many myths and misconceptions. I would like to address some of those myths by responding to the ones most frequently heard. Please note that these opinions are mine and reflect my experiences with the photomanipulation community, but perhaps they will be informative nevertheless.
Myth 1: DDs should always be perfect.
To many of us, the ideal Daily Deviation goes to an artist with amazing talent whose work draws you in and makes you think, "Wow, everyone needs to see this!" A DD should move you, inspire you, and provoke you to think, b

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.
